Scotland is a big place. Any idea where you want to go.
Most of coastline accessible and many Sea lochs. Look at

Fort William/Kinlochleven, plenty of inland lochs to play about on and plenty of campsites.

head for mull, SIB heaven IMHO, Fidden Farm is camping perfection right on the sea. Pick your day and stay close to the shore and just as safe as a lake/loch.

Loch Sunart is good too with camp sites on the northern shore. Lots of wildlife, bays, beaches and islands to explore and Mull is within easy reach.

If you do want to stay inland at first, as Pol says the only one with a "full on" registration is Lomond, however be aware there are HP restrictions on other lochs, where you will probably be OK based on what I guess you have on your transom, but above certain HP it can get expensive to lauhch or banned. (E.G. Earn - <50Hp it;s something stioopid like 3, >50 it's 15 kind of thing. Some of the small fishing Lochs above Callander are limited to 2 or 3 HP....)

Google does shed a lot of light.

Lochs Tay, Awe and the Caley Canal also provide lots of open, fresh water.
